What is an Educational Tour?

What is an educational tour? If you’ve ever wondered about this, you’re not the only one. In an era of marketing fads and short-lived campaigns, is this another term coined by the digital marketing industry? The answer is, no. Educational tours have been around for a long time, and form an important part of the education system.

Purpose of Education Tour

The primary purpose of an educational tour or a field tour is to educate students, and provide them with a chance to learn from a new set of experiences in an informal setting. In addition to this, a school tour also allows students to develop close bonds with teachers and classmates. Here are some benefits of educational tours.

Benefits of Educational Tours

Foundation

A field tour acts as the foundation for improved learning experiences. They can be an excellent break for both students and teachers. As mentioned earlier, educational tours not only educate, but prove to be a good medium for developing stronger relationships.

Better Engagement

With proper guidance and support from teachers, educational tours turn out to be mobile classrooms. Students are able to learn from fun and interactive sessions outside the monotonous school routine.

Socialization

On school trips, students are able to socialize and interact with people from all walks of life. Whether you choose a new city or a day excursion, these trips are a chance to learn from fresh perspectives.

Retention

With innovative measures and new discoveries, students are able to learn many new things. In fact, they are also able to retain memories for longer periods, and gain knowledge more effectively.

Though a short holiday is one of the benefits of educational trips, there are many others you need to consider before choosing a place. The best educational places for field trips possess certain qualities that allow both teachers and students to interact and learn in an informal setting. Going outside the usual norms can have a huge impact on students, who are always keen to grab learning opportunities.

 

Identifying Educational Places for Field Trips

 

Developing close relationships is one of the most important educational trip benefits. On an educational trip, students get a chance to absorb new and fresh experiences without the rules and regulations set by teachers. Professional guides are more friendly in nature, and provide the right kind of freedom to explore and learn. However, choosing a good place is top priority. Here are some qualities you should look for in a place before planning an educational trip.

 

Interesting Experiences – The place you choose for an educational trip should provide students with interesting and fresh learning experiences. For instance, while Corbett lets students explore wildlife and flora, Kanatal lets them get close to nature.

 

Educational Places for Field Trips

 

Great Bonding Time – During the course of the trip, students should be able to bond with each other through different games and activities. Trekking in Nag Tibba is one such example. It allows students to rely on each other, and develop leadership skills.

 

Lessons and Learnings – Needless to say, a field trip is a great way to acquire good and new learning experiences. The place you choose should be rich in either culture, heritage, nature or wildlife. This allows students to learn something good.

 

When it comes to educational places for field trips, you need proper guidance to make an informed choice. Renok Adventures makes sure your students and teachers have a good time on the trip, and come back with numerous learning and lessons. If you want to get in touch with us, just click here.
